Contemporary art invades the streets of Lisbon’s historic neighborhoods...

July 20th, saw the launch of Paratissima Lisboa, a collaborative, inclusive and democratic exposition of contemporary art in public places.

Paratíssima Lisboa ran for five days, from July 20 to 24 in the historic neighborhoods of Alfama, Castelo and Mouraria, in the Santa Maria Maior parish.

The course of the exhibition ran over 2.5 kilometers with six categories: Paraphoto, Paravideo, Paraplastic, Paravisual, Paradesign and Parafashion. These areas featured more than 1,000 artworks from more than 300 artists of various nationalities, as well as other related activities along the route. The whole exhibition was designed to facilitate discovery by locals and visitors, using the streets as well as other improbable locales for the exhibition of the art. And the works themselves are also innovative in form and content.

Paratíssima Lisboa is the largest public art exhibition in Europe, promoted by the parish government with the support of the Lisbon City Hall, with exclusive sponsorship from the Millennium bcp Foundation
